Impala - Year 3

Welcome to the Impala Page!


Welcome back after what I hope was a relaxed break.

This term, our topic is ‘Brave Warriors’, focusing on the invasion of Britain by the Romans. We will be looking at the geography of the United Kingdom, and investigating life in Roman Britain. We are also fortunate enough to have the theatre company ‘Partake’ coming in to spend the day with us and teach us more about the Romans. Our R.E topic this term is Sikhism, and we will continue to be learning from a rich wider curriculum throughout the year.

In March, Impala will be going swimming at the Meres Leisure Centre. More information will be sent out about this nearer the time. We will also continue to do scheduled P.E inside school. Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit in school all week so that they are prepared for any timetable changes, and that this includes suitable clothing for both indoor and outdoor activities.


Homework this term consists of:

  • Creative Homework Task
  • Reading Challenge
  • Challenge 5 Short, regular maths questions to complete on the same day of learning.


Please continue to support your child in their reading and spellings.

Please get in touch if you wish to discuss any concerns about your child’s progress.

Thank you,

World Book Day

Our class celebrated World Book Day in style with these fabulous hats! We really enjoyed reading and sharing books with children from different classes in the school.

Roman Day

We had a great day with Partake learning more about the Romans. In the morning, we investigated Roman artifacts, and looked at games that the Romans played. We also tasted some foods that the Romans enjoyed such as dates and their very own tomato ketchup! In the afternoon, two of our class got to dress in Roman clothing. They looked super. Finally, we re-enacted a battle between the Romans and Barbarians with big Roman shields, and the boys won! It was a great day.

Flag Fen

We had a wonderful time on our class trip to Flag Fen Archaeology Park near Peterborough which is home to a unique ancient wooden monument.  A kilometre long wooden causeway and platform are perfectly preserved in the wetland. Three thousand three hundred years ago this was built and used by the Prehistoric fen people as a place of worship and ritual. Sixty thousand upright timbers and two hundred and fifty horizontal planks are buried under the ground along with many swords and personal items given as offerings to the watery fen. It was a fabulous opportunity for us to discover what life was like for our prehistoric ancestors.

Celebrating Harvest

I was so proud of the class when they, along with the children in Barasingha Class, led our Harvest celebration. We all had great fun learning the songs and the children worked wonderfully together to perform in front of their friends and family. Well done everyone!
